The Energy Carrier Online Tool (BioBoost Navigator) is a mean of dissemination to spread the project results on e.g. the conversion technologies, the energy carriers and their utilisation, the residue biomass pathways and especially their eventual implementation in Europe to stakeholders, scientists and citizens. This information gateway leads to the results of the dynamic logistic/economic optimisation model, which is at the core of the Navigator as it interprets and projects the BioBoost results to Europe: A transportation network is established between biomass collection areas for different feedstocks, decentralised conversion plants and central upgrading or utilization facilities. The output of the pathways is then optimised in terms of amount and return on invest. The user finds summarised information about the pathways (with links to the respective deliverables for further details) and key results like plant capacities, costs of the single steps of the considered pathway and the total production costs and capacities. The results are generated by an heuristic algorithm and thus approximations to the one and only optimal solution. Displayed are the results of the best of three parallel runs.
